Out of all the Tintin books I bought, this is the only one I got in Hardcover edition because I have a lot of memories associated with The Black Island. When I was 8 years old, I got into an accident and fractured my leg. So, after the operation I had to take 3 months holiday from school. One evening during a power cut my mom made me chicken soup, but I wouldn't drink it. She knew books were my weakness and then she pulled this mysterious looking comic called The Black Island from her bag which she had borrowed from her office's library. She later blackmailed me into drinking it if I wanted to read the book, which I of course did. I remember finishing the book in the same night under the light of a candle and then re-reading it many times over the next two weeks and begging mom to bring more books of Tintin. I have never looked back and my love for Herge's Tintin has only exponentially increased since then. A terrific, magical series both for adults and kids. One for the ages.
